We are delighted to announce we are launching a Walking Football session from Tuesday 14 September.
The session will be weekly, every Tuesday 10-11am at The Honeywell Centre.
This session is open to any age and any ability. The session is not directly aimed at participants over a certain age, we do not want to exclude younger players returning from injury or those struggling with health issues.
Walking Football is a unique, small-sided version of Football. As the name suggests, it is strictly walking only with some other rule changes from Association Football. The ball is not allowed above head height, there is no physical contact and only goalkeepers are allowed in the goal area.
